Donate Goods

Because we are a temporary home for hundreds of adults and children each year, we need all the things any home would use. See below for lists of immediate and on-going needs.

Many clients have to quickly leave a dangerous situation and come to us with only a few belongings they were able to stuff in a bag. You can help our clients regain a sense of normalcy by donating to our ongoing programs. Please contact Antonella Kinder, our Volunteer & In-Kind Coordinator, at akinder@nwaws.org or 479-246-0353 x 250  for more information.
